KDE startup: Very tiny fonts

Haven't noticed this anywhere else than kde and slackware, sometimes when I restart kde it starts with very tiny fonts, so small that you can't read those.
Anyone else faced this?

Go to settings and then to Control Center .Then you must get a configuration panel like window..There you can change all your fonts..if some things turns

When kde starts with tiny fonts the text is so small that you can't read it at all so it makes impossible to change anything, if you don't know the exact order of fonts etc.
Restarting kde helps to this issue, and it returns to normal fonts, but would be nice to know what causes it and how to fix it.
I have default fonts, only thing I've changed on those is the size which I've rise 1-2 points on every font.

I also have this problem and I am totally hoping someone can help. Can I manually hack a file and change the font from this tiny literally unreadble font into something else.

I have a normal font in the xterm, but in KDE nothing is readable.

Start KDE without your monitor attached and then plug it in after it loads and see if it gives you normal fonts. I had my laptop always give me small font sizes unless I started X without my monitor plugged in...and it also went to hell when I turned antialiasing on, think that may have had something to do with it.
